Sultry + Romantic Spanish Elopement Inspiration

While this may be an inspirational shoot perfect for all our romantic readers out there, this style and every image from Stephanie Brazzle is so, so good, I’m begging someone to replicate for their own real wedding. All you need to do is dial up Meggie Francisco to plan and design all the details and get La Tavola and Bella Acento on board for all beautiful linens and flatware. Because it’s obvious; when these vendors come together, magic happens. See it all before your eyes in our VAULT right here!

From Meggie Francisco… Locación, locación, locación: Sultry and romantic, with creamy terra cotta arches, Escondido Golf and Lake Club in Horseshoe Bay, Texas is the perfect spot for a Texas couple who would love to do a Latin-inspired destination wedding, yet prefers to keep the festivities local.

Our palette of apricot, dusty rose, and rich greens was pulled directly from the surroundings at Escondido. To bring this vision to life, Posh Floral masterfully composed a table centerpiece chock full of roses, orchids, ranunculus, and a variety of greenery, all overflowing from a sturdy golf compote. The place setting is comprised of fantastic finds from all sorts of places – the pale pink china is from Crate and Barrel, and we found the delicate pink Mexican glassware tucked away on a busy shelf at World Market. We topped the milky La Tavola linens with a sheer tattered scarf to add texture and character to the look.

The romantic yet daring Ines di Santo gown combines delicate lace with daring lines for a sexy yet demure bridal look, which is complemented by an organic, free-flowing bouquet with abundant greens and pale apricot and blush florals. The elegantly crafted statement earrings and classic round-cut rose gold engagement ring complement the look of simple glamour. For a touch of destination-inspired fun, the Aruna Seth shoes feature ornate beading with a tiny touch of turquoise, reminiscent of warm ocean waters.

Terra cotta ink and tile place cards bring earthiness and substance to the design while tying in the surrounding architecture, while the romantic calligraphy ensures that the feel remains airy and festive.

We are excited to share this shoot with readers of Style Me Pretty to show that if your destination wedding dreams are dashed, with the right design choices, it’s possible to achieve the same sense of passion and adventure to your home state!

Whimsical

From Awake PhotographyA classic tale of Texas girl meets Southern California surfer boy. Linda and Sheyne got married in her hometown of Houston, Texas and it was a day no one will soon forget. Starting at the fabulous Hotel Zaza, Linda and her 19 bridesmaids got dolled up with the help of Kiss and Makeup and The Perfect Face. They all looked absolutely stunning in the couture Plum Pretty Sugar dresses in shades of lavender, pinks and blues. They perfectly complimented the gorgeous bride wearing a stunning Monique Lhuillier gown. After getting married at the Bride’s childhood church, St. John the Divine, everyone headed to the reflection pools at the Houston Zoo where they danced the night away under string lighting, chandelier in the trees, and perfect Texas weather. The bride and groom are animal lovers, so they surprised their guests with the animal experience at cocktail hour. Animal trainers brought out an assortment of creatures for the guests to feed and pet. It was a huge hit! Bramble and Bee created gorgeous florals full of garden roses, ranunculus, and tulips which were perfectly accented by tiny golden animals as place cards. To round out a day of celebrating a lovely couple, Pomp and Circumstance, surprised the couple and their guests with a donut holes bar as a midnight snack. The day couldn’t have been more perfect, nor the couple more radiant.

From Loft PhotographyBeing that Brittany is a talented artist, we knew her wedding day was going to have well thought out & lovely details! We adore the rich colors that she chose for her wedding, and the bougainvillea around every corner at Escondido fit right in with her unique bouquets and centerpieces.

From The Bride…My wedding day encompassed Mediterranean architecture with Tuscan landscaping meets romantic Texas Hill Country! The wedding had contrast and pops of colors with a primary color palette of fuchsia and teal mixed with secondary colors of grey, mauve and taupe with a side contrast of black and white tuxedos and a checkered black and white dance floor. There were many different textures to play off of for the tablescapes: deer antlers with gold hombre spray paint, grapewood branches, textured teak wood tables, copper chargers, romantic candlelights, mix of glassware with mercury candle votives and teal olive oil vases, airplants and succulents native to Texas. Family heirlooms also played a part in our wedding with my parents 70’s champagne goblets and ring bearer pillow, my grandmother’s jewelry and my mom’s tennis bracelet.
